Cheapest and most efficient for me (especially for expanses of surfaces like cabinets or concrete floors) has always been granular TSP, dissolved in warm water and washed with a rag. You can find TSP in a paint, hardware or home store. One does need to go over the surfaces with a clear water rinsed rag, to rinse any TSP residue off, in most cases.
It is drying to skin, so if you are sensitive, wear vinyl gloves when using it.

Use industrial cleaning solution that are available from many stores. If that is made of metal use metal polisher instead. But for me after I purchase doors from http://caldwells.com/interior-doors/flush-doors as replacement for our closet doors, I am then using detergent powder to cleans it.

In these days, Most of the kitchen cabinets are constructed with tiles, Which are best for frequent cleaning. In tiles also, Various kinds are there at best prices. Better to go with natural home remedies to clean up the cabinet.

The spammers now are not just irritating but now they speak in jibberish.

Cabinets made of tile? Various kinds?

Wilma Flintstone probably had rock cabinets. Sort of like tile. In these days, I am sure she also would have used home remedies to clean up with.

Good Grief! This was one humorous thread...from the sublime to the ridiculous. I am curious tho as to where tiled cabinets are on the planet.
